Origami do Brazil

Post by Michel G » Mon Jul 06, 2015 8:43 pm

I have found a Brazilian's origami ("historical") blog where you can see 2 series of "minhas dobraduras". The first has 17 models and the 2nd, 4 models.

Nothing is mentioned about the date (and place of publication) but the drawing looks like (for me, but I could be wrong) the 1950's or the 1960's.

So please go to http://origamibrazil.blogspot.fr and tell us more...

ps the frog is not described in the 21 showed models.

Cool. I would say 40's or 50's. The blogger's name is Fabio Moura. Did you send him a message through the blog?
He participates in another website:

I think Fabio Moura is only a follower of the blog (not updated from September 2010).
It seems no possible (for me) to contact directly the blogger follower of the website you mention.
I just put, today, a comment on the "modelo 01" (in Spanish and English) : we will see...

In the first blog (orgamibrazil.blogspot.fr) he's the only member. So maybe he's the creator. Lucia da Costa, a Brazilian paperfolder, sent him a message through its contact page. But who knows if he will get back, the site seems inactive. In the second site, this man Fabio Moura, is one of many. We'll see what happens.
Lucia may bring some information from Brazil. It's a very interesting topic, we know nothing about its history and there is a large Japanese community especialy in Sao Paulo and origami is strong in Brazil. She's traveling in the next few days to Brazil (she's living in Buenos Aires now) and said she'll try to do some research.

Finaly, I have received an answer of my comment (3 weeks after), but not be inform about...

So the webmaster of the site wrote me:
"Hi Thanks, I developed this blog 5 years ago. I'm not done, I have more models. Including the banner frog. Any day I put it on, because it's the best origami I've ever made. Spend up to 20 minutes to get it ready.
As for the document, I got it from my grandmother's things. I think he's about 60 years old."

In January 2016, I've found that according Boletim bibliográfico da Bibliotheca Nacional do Rio de Janeiro (1945) - Pages 194-195
(https://books.google.fr/books?id=IcI8AAAAYAAJ)
and
Boletim bibliográfico (1947) - Volume 1 - Page 195 (https://books.google.fr/books?id=2_MlAQAAIAAJ):
"Minhas dobraduras. /I.a ed. São Paulo/, Ed. Melhoramentos, /1945/. 30 p. soltas, il. 26 cm. (Trabalhos manuais). Preço: Cr$ 8,00.
Companhia Melhoramentos São Paulo. Minhas férias. /São Paulo/, Edições Melhoramentos, /1945/. 8 f. 21x23 ..."
